New York, NY (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
PINGMD, Inc., a New York City-based mobile communications healthcare solutions company, has just announced that Lambda Fund IV is making an investment in PINGMD, Inc.’s three-million series B-round of funding.
Having invested in companies such as SeniorBridge (acquired by Humana), AthenaHealth, Medidata Solutions and Health Dialog acquired by BUPA, the Lambda Fund’s Managing Partner Anthony Lamport says, "I am excited about PINGMD's transformational approach to intelligent communications in healthcare.” Dr. Gopal K. Chopra, CEO of PINGMD, Inc. says, "Lambda brings a depth of healthcare services experience and technology insight that will help propel PINGMD forward in the growing sea change of healthcare delivery."
PINGMD is the first ever HIPAA-compliant, completely secure and free-of-charge app-based service designed to restore relationships between patients and their healthcare providers. It is helping to pave the way towards a new era of patient-centric healthcare with improved access and better overall care for patients by providing case collaboration, continuity of care and a permanent record for digital health recordkeeping.
Given the growing trend of doctors spending less than 10 minutes with each of their patients, founders Gopal Chopra M.D. and Manju Chopra M.D. recognized that technology could improve the escalating healthcare issues including rising costs, slow delivery of care, patient dissatisfaction and physician fatigue. “Mobile technology should improve patient care and make the doctor's visit more personal, productive and efficient,” explains Manju Chopra. She continues, “Tech should allow patients and doctors to communicate clearly and effectively, which is why we launched PINGMD.”
As PINGMD continues to secure additional B-round funding, co-founder Gopal Chopra has plans in the works to extend the service in 2013 to all healthcare practitioners, hospitals and healthcare companies.
